Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from All City Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where All City Appraisal comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from All City Appraisal can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from All City Appraisal is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from All City Appraisal helps you make the sharpest decisions.
